Garrold (2603) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle from Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. On Halloween! Clear amber colour. Minimal, but lasting, white head. Has the Fantome over cooked veg thing going on. Lots of barley sugar. Some spice, definitely clove. Some ginger, maybe. Hint of ripe dessert apple. Nice body, carbonation helps cut through any overt sweetness. Taste is apple dry and toffee sweet, all at the same time. Finishes medium dry. Mouth filling Autumnal goodness. Not the best, but you can’t deny it’s interesting!!

hopscotch (10082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Bottle... Cloudy straw-cored pour with a small, creamy, white head. The aromatics are of perfume and smoked malt. Medium-bodied with jazzy carbonation. The flavor is tart, oddly salty and herbal - not unpleasant. Finishes tangy with a tiny pinch of salt.

jkwood04 (4771) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 14, 2013
750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of light tartness, some pale and caramel malts, a little fruit/spiciness, and a light bitterness. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not bad but not the best from this brewery.

PriorL (2775) - Gent, BELGIUM - SEP 16, 2013
75cl bottle at Delirium Brussels, shared with Mathieu87. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, nice stable white head. NOSE: fruity, grains, yeast, hops, alcohol. TASTE: pumpkin, sweet, little wood, herbs, too much spices though, not completely balanced. But decent!

KyotoLefty (7553) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 16, 2013
Bottle. Muddy orange brown, flat. Nose of apples and oranges, acidic tang, light spices. No pumpkin notes. Sweet-and-sour flavor, funk-ass, smoke, lemons. Weird as hell and certainly going off, but somehow still enjoyable enough.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Hey, Boo. Fantome weirdness in the form of smoked apple juice, barbeque sauce, grassy hops, and dandelions. Oh, and a hint of saltiness. Somehow bright in its flavor. Amazingly stupid/awesome label. WTF? Cheers, Jason.

emacgee (4376) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Thanks Jason! Soft murky amber pour with a crackly off white head. Ephemeral and funky nose. Wonderful wild and floral notes as well. Lightly sweet with smoky notes in the flavor. Touches of apple skin and earthy malt with a touch of cracked pepper. More body than expected. Very nice!

drowland (6841) - Georgia, USA - JUL 15, 2013
7/3/13. 750mL bottle thanks to cheesemoose. Hazy orange pour with a small khaki head. Sour citrus, funk, and metal on the aroma and flavor with some tomato soup, yogurt, and phenolics. Disappointing.

750ml bottle: This one opened with a huge geyser of beer. I must have lost about 1/4 of it. Anyway, it pours a fairly opaque orangish-dark golden color. There was quite a bit of an off-white head, but it didn’t linger long or leave too much lacing. Lots of aroma to the nose. Bready, yeasty and spicy, and then the fun starts. I get some pumpkin and clove, as well as some other more garden type aromas. An interesting taste. Tart, spices, some of the pumpkin, a bit dry and bitter also. An interesting brew. I’d definitely have another!
